Countdown by Lynette Eason is a must read suspense book. The reader is drawn into the book from the very beginning. The main characters, Raina and Vince, are both harboring secrets and regrets from their past. Raina has trust issues even where her best friends are concerned, and although she is in need of help, she hesitates to ask for it. Like many, she feels people, even those close to her, will judge her based on her past. As her story unfolds, the plot becomes more complex. For whatever reason, someone is trying to kill her; Vince is trying to keep her safe. Eason does an excellent job developing both major and minor characters. This book is a real page turner, and the reader will have difficulty putting it down.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. The opinions in this review are my own.
